Kart racing at Emblem Saturday

by nathan oster

If you’re not into the buckin’ broncs or the bull bash and are looking for something to do Saturday afternoon, you might find what you’re looking for 11 miles west of Greybull in the old sugar beet dump site.

The first go-kart races of the summer in Emblem are planned, with time trials starting at 1 p.m. and heat races to follow at 3 p.m.   Admission is free. Unlike last year, there will be no concession sales.

Two local riders, Kevin and Brenda Peterson, will be among the riders participating in the races, which are sanctioned by the Park County Kart Club (www.parkcountykartclub.com).

Brenda Peterson said there’d be divisions for kids, men and women as well as a new stock class, and that fans should bring their FM radios to listen to the track announcer, their chairs and their own shade.
